The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is dedicated to investigating and prosecuting individuals who import firearms parts to make and distribute unregulated 3D printed guns.

On June 19, 2024, the CBSA charged Brodie Alexander McDonald under the Criminal Code of Canada (CCC) with one count of each of the following:

  • Weapons trafficking under S.99(1) of the CCC
  • Possession of Prohibited Firearm S.91(1) of the CCC
  • Possession of Prohibited Device S.91(2) of the CCC
  • Possession of Prohibited Firearm with Ammunition under S.95(1) of the CCC

The CBSA’s Pacific Region Criminal Investigations Section began its investigation in December 2022 after a shipment addressed to McDonald containing firearm parts was intercepted at the Vancouver International Mail Centre. Earlier that year, McDonald had also received packages containing suspected frame rails that are used to manufacture 3D printed firearms.

On June 20, 2023, CBSA criminal investigators, with assistance of the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team, executed a search warrant on a residence in Langley, B.C. A number of items were seized, including:

  • One loaded 3D printed Glock 19 semiautomatic pistol
  • Two 3D printed lower receivers, completion kits for Polymer 80 firearms
  • One suppressor
  • 3D Printer and filament

McDonald’s first court appearance is scheduled for July 9, 2024.
